Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross met with the German delegation attending the fourth SelectUSA Investment Summit that took place from June 18-20 near Washington D.C. Over the course of three days, the German delegates gained key insights into the U.S. market and had the opportunity to connect with representatives of all 50 states to learn more about potential sites for their expansion plans. “This continues to be the best place for business representatives to find growth opportunities in the United States,” said Secretary Ross. “The record number of attendees at this year’s event further shows that the United States is becoming an even stronger investment destination. We look forward to announcing job-creating business transactions that arose from this great event.” The annual Investment Summit connects global business leaders with U.S. economic development teams to facilitate U.S. investment. More than 3,000 people registered for the event, including 1,200 business representatives from 64 foreign markets.
